In terms of its small enrollment
and substantial expenses, what value
is the Residential College to the
University at large?
And now that the RC has com-
pleted its first four years as an
"educational laboratory", w h a t
should be the future course of the
experimental college?
These are two of the questions
which many members of the Uni-
versity community are asking now

freshman class will graduate this

Members of the committe will also
look into teaching, curriculum; coun-
seling and other areas of the college,
possibly determining the direction
of RC in the oncoming years.
"I feel the committee will be a
key in what the future decisions on
RC will be," says Alfred Sussman,
acting dean of the literary college.
The review committee will like-
ly take into account widespread
criticism of the Residential College
as voiced by students and faculty
members outside the college.

A major criticism directed at the
RC is that the college serves too few
students at too high a cost per stu-
"Some faculty believe that a dis-
porportionate share of expenditures
are made at Residential College,
and that it would be better for
everybody if the money was spent to
benefit the larger LSA college," says
President Robben Fleming.
According to Ted Newcomb, one
of the founders of RC and the as-
sociate director of the college, t h e
average cost per RC student during
the program's first year was 50 per
cent higher than costs for students
in the literary college.

After nearly a year in the
making, a University-wide ju-
dicial system was approved by
the Regents at their regular
monthly meeting yesterday,
with few changes from their
redraft of the judiciary com-
mittee's original proposal.
The new system - which will
adjudicate alleged violations of
the Regents' Interim Disciplinary
Rules until a new set of rules are
approved by Student Government
Council, Senate Assembly and the
Regents - provides for student
and faculty defendants to be tried
by a jury of their peers.
In other action, the Regents
approved a plan for the construe-
tion of 200 low-rent apartments
on North Campus by fall, 1972
